The release of Asterisk 1.4.44 and resolve an issue wherein app_milliwatt
can potentially overrun a buffer on the stack, causing Asterisk to crash.  This
does not have the potential for remote code execution.

The release of Asterisk and 10.2.1 resolve two issues.  First, they
resolve the issue in app_milliwatt, wherein a buffer can potentially be overrun
on the stack, but no remote code execution is possible.  Second, they resolve
an issue in HTTP AMI where digest authentication information can be used to
overrun a buffer on the stack, allowing for code injection and execution.

These issues and their resolution are described in the security advisory.

For more information about the details of these vulnerabilities, please read the
security advisories AST-2012-002 and AST-2012-003, which were released at the same
time as this announcement.
